Three new Charity Trustees announced to strengthen our Board

03 June 2021

We are delighted to announce the appointment, as we celebrate our 21st year, of three new Charity Trustees who will be joining us in July.

Tom Brock OBE who has been a Charity Trustee with Keep Scotland Beautiful for over a decade, was unanimously appointed Chair by the Board in late April, said, “I’m pleased, in my first month as Chair, to be able to welcome three new trustees, at what is a challenging and exciting time for our charity.  All have a real passion and commitment to support what we want to achieve, and I have no doubt, will be a real asset to us as we all work to combat climate change, tackle litter and waste, increase environmental education and enhance the places we all care about.”

Joining the Board of Charity Trustees at the end of June 2021 are Renata Scofield, Neil Urquhart and Dr Susan Lindner-Kelly.

International senior executive, Renata Scofield, currently responsible for bringing teams together to deliver environmental, sustainable and governance (ESG) strategies in global supply chains for Diageo PLC, said, “The work Keep Scotland Beautiful does speaks truly to my heart; I am deeply passionate about the opportunity and responsibility we have to make positive changes in the world, now and for future generations. I firmly believe that Climate Change is the most significant challenge of our time and am a huge advocate of using education as a tool to engage and empower local communities in this journey. I couldn't be happier to be joining the KSB family”.

Neil Urquhart has over 20 years’ experience in the Scotch Whisky sector and is currently Chairman of Gordon & MacPhail and a Non-Executive Director with Johnstons of Elgin.  He said, “I’m delighted to join the Keep Scotland Beautiful Team.  I’ve always loved spending time in Scotland’s natural environment and hope my involvement and contribution to the team will help protect and promote a sustainable Scotland.”

Dr. Susan Lindner-Kelly has over 15 years’ experience effecting change inside public and private sector organisations at a national level, and voluntarily within local community organisations. She said, “I have spent my career either teaching or working in industry supporting people with behaviour and strategic change and I absolutely love co-creating ways to make change happen.

“I’m passionate about our countryside, the environment and building our individual connections to nature and the positive impact it can have on all generations and walks of life within local communities - rural and urban. I am so looking forward to helping engage more and more people”.
